Sala Montjuic is finally back this year: The best Open Air Cinema!
Little by little everything is turning back to normal in the big city and we are super excited that the Sala Montjuic cinema is back as well! Let’s go to watch movies outdoors, have a picnic with friends and have a great night together. This event has existed for more than 10 years and continues to excite local people and tourists.
Every year, next to the Montjuïc castle, film screenings are held. After several weeks debating about the festival during Covid times, in the end it will be done! From July 20th to August 19th we can meet again in the gardens of our favourite mountain to enjoy a session of good cinema and good music. They will be on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the session will begin as usual: with a concert, the screening of a short film and, at the end, the screening of the main film.
The program is like every year, we will find the latest international hits –’Parasite’,’ A Star Is Born’,’ The Joker’– and of course also the classics of all times – Con la muerte en los talones–, arthouse cinema and Catalan talent. The screenings will be in the original version with subtitles in Spanish, the live music performance starts around 20:45 and the last session will be a surprise film. Which one will it be this year? Make sure to buy some tickets in advance because there is limited space in order to comply with the Covid rules.
Take something to sit down to be more comfortable or rent a chair. And don’t forget to bring something to eat and maybe a bottle of wine or else you can buy beer cans and other drinks and food right there. It is recommended to arrive around 20:30..And watch out for the temperature, check the weather forecast first, it can cool down a bit at night and there are mosquitos J
In case it rains, two things can happen: If the movie has not yet started, the organizers may cancel it. In that case, if someone has already bought the ticket, the money can be returned. And the other possibility is that the movie has already started and it starts to rain. Then all these people can attend another movie later with the same ticket.
